STARS Restaurant! Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful dining experience! The food was delicious, the staff extra attentive and friendly, and the dining room is beautiful. Chef Jody Adams came out to chat and see how we liked everything. Afterwards we sat outside, listening to the music while having a drink and enjoying the water views. We live on the Cape and Stars is one of our favorite restaurants!
We were very disappointed in most every area but especially the food and the value. We arrived early and it was a beautiful evening in Chatham to celebrate a birthday of one of our guests but from the start the service was just ok and the dishes we ordered were disappointing. A rib eye steak for 2 - the only beef choice on the menu at $150. --yielded small portions and had to be sent back for additional cooking to reach medium. The clam chowder was not really soup but a mixture poured over some clams in their shell. The bass and the scallops were good but very small portions for a dinner meal and arrived without accompanying vegetables or a side dish. I really love dressing up and going out to a grand hotel like this so I was looking forward to it. In particular I have been to Stars and Chatham Bars Inn many times and suggested it for this birthday dinner so I was disappointed and embarrassed that it did not work out. I won't go back anytime soon, if ever.
Although the staff seemed surprise that we had a reservation when we arrrived, all worked out fine. They did know it was our anniversary. The 18oz steak was bone in, so at $150 you were not eating 18oz of meat. Fish was fresh and most likely local. Plenty of staff available, although drink service was very slow.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Creamy garlic soup was a delight and exquisitely served. My husband remarked on the freshness of the salad straight from the farm. The NY sirloin was perfect in temperature and had an inviting presentation. My lobster entree was a pleasure to my eyes and palate. We just loved it!
We recommend the apple dessert as well as the chocolate lava cake.
Cocktails, wine, and cordials were of the best quality.
Thank you Travis for your exceptional service! We plan to return to this fine restaurant soon.
Terrific meal experience despite the steak cart (bring that back) being discontinued. Service(Alex) was truly outstanding - friendly, courteous, outgoing, gastric knowledgable and very professional. Entire staff was great. Sirloin wonderful and wife's scallops cooked to perfection; along with very accomadating for diet restrictions too. Great location for a special meal in a wonderful location.
This is the third dinner we have had at Stars, but the first since its change from a steak house. The results were mixed for us. My meal (Salmon) was very good and my dessert (Sorbet) was great also. My wife who had her heart set on steak, ordered the Sirloin and was disappointed. Her steak was a bit tough and there was nothing else on the plate other than two tiny potatoes and vegetables. Her dessert was also a bit dry and although listed as cake was delivered as a cupcake.
Wine list was great as always, service has been better in the past but still above average.
I think this restaurant is still transitioning away from its steakhouse past, its not there yet, but I hope it continues to improve to get back to the level we enjoyed when it was a steakhouse.
The service was terrible. The hostess had to ,finally send a waiter to our table. He never cam back.
My wife ordered a glass of wine from the hostess.
Worse than the service was the food. I ordered the veal chop and it was at least 80% fat. I told the hostess it was a disgrace. The saddest part was my daughter call Stars and paid the bill as a gift to us. My wife had scallops ,five only and nothing with it. Never again
I had heard some mixed reviews about the food - the Inn and restaurant are lovely. Every amenity is cared for, the staff from the parking valet to the waitstaff is outstanding and the food, well any reservations about the food were baseless. The food is excellent - presented beautifully and very delicious. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we will be sure to return.
The Sommelier was outstanding, apologized that the wine we had selected was not cooled and suggested an alternative that was NOT an upcharge, and turned out to be one of the best wines I have had in a long time. The wait staff uniform is a little awkward for the women, with a white fitted jacket and men's tie. The food was outstanding, but at first we were slightly worried that on every dish there was one item we didn't like - for me it was fennel, for my sons it was foie gras, but in the end, we each chose a different entree and were delighted with each!
Len, our seasoned waiter, was wonderful in his service, his descriptions of menu items, specials and his own recommendations of house favorites. It was our 18th wedding anniversary, and what better place than an Window seat out to the lawn and ocean. Great food, ambience, and location. From the valet parking attendants, who took great care with our Porsche, to the head hostess who saved our table, we were 15 mins. late in arriving. Saturday traffic coming from upper Cape. I will now find reasons to go more often even if there is not a grand celebration. Thank you Stars, Thank you Len... our new favorite waiter. The Audunsons
We visit Cape Cod every other year and stay at Wequassett. We had such a memorable night at Stars in 2014 so looked forward to returning this year - how things have changed in 2 years. The menu is now 'quirky' which would be fine if the food matched the chef's vision ... it doesn't . The $60 sirloin steak our children had was inedible and the accompanying roast potatoes the size of 2 x 10c pieces; the lobster was dull and accompanying vegetables did not belong on the same plate; the pudding tasted good but looked like it has been dropped - it hadn't but that's the look the chef was going for! Overall a very disappointing evening and needless to say I don't believe we'll return and 28 Atlantic is now head and shoulders above Stars.
The atmosphere - superb, service was fantastic. Very friendly staff, wait staff was very professional. Food was very unique and flavorful. Dessert was disappointing, strawberries and creme fraiche which consisted of 2 strawberries and a full cup of creme fraiche. One other thing, although not bothersome to us, a few tables over was a screaming toddler, surprising to see given the prices.
The venue is spectacular with a view to match. The service is impeccable nothing is overlooked. The food is absolutely sublime from the complimentary cold cucumber soup ,the imaginative appetizers and entrees to die for. Finish off with creative desserts. The wine list has choices in all price ranges. It was our anniversary and we received complimentary cookies on a platter emblazoned with Anniversary wishes in chocolate. The total experience was wonderful.
The service was great! The food very overpriced. This was our third time there,and very disappointed in the menu. We were looking forward to the meat cart, where you can choose your cut of meat and the size, and were told they longer provide that on the menu.BIG mistake for meat lovers. Also, their desserts used to be impressive,not so anymore.
Tasting menu. Two entrees were uneventful but solid. Some ( fluke, lamb) - excellent.
Attentive staff accommodated a child and served the meals promptly but without rush.
The only complaint is serving a course when a customer was not at the table -and letting it go cold. Eventually we asked for a plate cover, and the plate was taken back to the kitchen and served later, warm.
The location is lovely, the staff is very attentive and our server was delightful. For the price I think the food was over priced for what you got. The pate had a very odd texture to it and my lobster which was $50.00 had no flavor what so ever. It was poached in butter but I finally asked for melted butter and some salt to add some pizazz to it. The dining experience itself was lovely but the food...not the best for that price I have ever had. We were there the night before but at the bar area outside and the crab salad and coconut shrimp were fabulous.
That bill includes a couple of cocktails but no wine, it should be noted, and three of the five diners did not order starter courses. It's a beautiful room with a wonderful view and the menu is very good but not spectacular. There are some lovely farm to table options, elegantly prepared, and the desserts were a real standout, which was not the case when we dined here a year ago. The entrees were pretty simply prepared given the price, but the quality of the meat and seafood was excellent. Service was lovely if a little fawning. Because the room is so lovely and it is a resort I'm mystified why they don't make it a little less precious and/or expensive and fill the tables they have - it's always less than half full when we are there for dinner when I know that breakfast fills the room and adjacent ones as well.
